I was delighted when Heather and Jonathan asked me to conduct their Wedding in the City Halls in Glasgow on the 2 June 2012.
A Very Glasgow Wedding
It was a beautiful day and the City Halls lived up to all expectations as a very stylish setting for a city wedding. Located in Candleriggs, in Glasgow’s vibrant Merchant City, The City Halls and Old Fruitmarket are best known as the home to BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Built in 1882 by John Carrick, the City Halls were the first halls built that could accommodate large local gatherings.
The wedding ceremony itself was held in the beautiful white Recital Room. The City Halls has not only undergone extensive refurbishment but has amazing acoustics – including a grand piano and staircase. All credit to the great staff team who were a pleasure to work with.
Unique Wedding Ceremony
I met Heather and Jonathan almost 12 months before their wedding and had started working with them on their script for the day. Heather and Jonathan decided to include a Parent’s Well Wishing – which is a sensitive (and can be very emotional) way to include parents in the ceremony. They also had two readings from family and friends. A bit nerve wracking for them, but a lovely addition to a beautiful and very personal wedding ceremony in Glasgow.
It’s a good idea to give yourself a little time to consider all the options available in a humanist wedding. Your marriage ceremony is a great opportunity to create something unique and highly personal. There’s a great deal of freedom of choice within the ceremony. I like to help couples create a ceremony that talks a little about their journey together and it’s a pleasure to create a ceremony that reflects their personalities.
